This is a .pdf file decisive moment boy, a contact sheet showing how I have come to the final image. I feel very comfortable with children and so are they. This generation seems to like to be photographed and they usually pose like rapper singers which I dislike! I like them relaxed and lost in their own world. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to capture but my inner need is always to show emotions and tenderness. For this photo I had to speak and interact with them.
To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression. _ Henri Cartier-Bresson
